I think I have 2 answers to this.
My first is, the older I get, the more I realise that each generation is different.
There is not much point saying, "well this is what we did, and what happened to us". Move forward 30 years, and it is a different world with a different set of problems. I no longer think that everything happens in an improving line. I just dont think life works like that. In other words, I dont think that anyone should have expectations like that. We can all wish for something, but that does not make it true.
When I see war around the world, and remember what my dad and countless others lived through, sometimes my highest expectation is just for peace.
But having said that, yes housing has got to ridiculous prices, with no end in sight.
I do think, that part of the shortage is due to a lot of houses nowadays only having one occupant. Or perhaps two. Instead of say 4 previously.
As to the answer? I dont know. I think the answer, with the new government now in for the next 5 years, is largely political, if not totally political.
